A new species of Crenicichla has been described from the rio Juruena basin, a headwater tributary of the rio Tapajós in Mato Grosso state, Brazil. Crenicichla chica is named in reference to traditional celebrations of the Paresi (or Halíti) people, an indigenous group originally inhabiting the Juruena region.
